cricketers, Palestine attack
Several cricketers have come forward to support the people of Palestine and raised their voice against the Israeli airstrike.

As the death toll in the recent Gaza violence reached 69, including 16 children and six women, several cricketers have come forward to support the people of Palestine and raised their voice against the Israeli airstrike.

Pakistan skipper Babar Azam recently took to his official Twitter handle to express solidarity with the people of Palestine.

“Prayers for the people of Palestine. We just have to be human to stand up for humanity,” wrote the 26-year-old batsman.

Apart from Babar, Pakistan’s former Test captain Azhar Ali also came out to deliver a strong message against the deadly attack and prayed for the Palestinian people.

“The unjust acts of terrorism and cruelty happening in Palestine are totally unacceptable. Our hearts bleed for our Muslim brothers & sisters. In the final days of this Holy Month of Ramadan, I request everyone to pray for the situation in Palestine,” Azhar tweeted.

Notably, the messages of solidarity weren’t limited to just Pakistani cricketers as Afghanistan leg-spinner Rashid Khan too condemned the Israeli attack.

Calling it a heinous crime, Rashid tweeted, “As an athlete who plays cricket around the world, I want to see this world out of war. I can’t watch people being killed in #Afghanistan & #Palestine. No crime is more heinous than the killing of a child.”

Here’s see how other cricketers reacted to Israel-Palestine conflict:
